    1. FOR SAFE USE

    1-1 Precaution on the pipette use DANGER

    - This instrument is not an explosion proof instrument. Do not use the pipette in an environment where there is a risk of explosion, or use it for explosive chemicals that may cause explosion.

    - When using potentially harmful solutions, such as infectious bacteria or viruses, radioactive substances that have a risk of exposure, or poisons, exercise extreme caution and follow all safety measures.

    CAUTION - Please refer to “7-5 Parts names and materials” and “17-2 Tips, tip boxes and the

    filter” for compatibility when organic solvents or corrosive solutions are to be dispensed.

    - Do not attempt to disassemble or repair the pipette by yourself. Refer to “14. TROUBLE SHOOTING” when it appears that the pipette has a mechanical error.

    1-2 Precautions on handling the battery The MPA series use the high-density lithium-ion battery. To prevent injuries or accidents due to a leaking battery, heat generation, fire or burst, and to ensure safe use, be sure to keep the manual on hand.

    DANGER - Do not dispose of the battery in fire, do not heat it, do not disassemble or modify it. - Do not splash water on the battery, or do not keep the battery in a location at high

    temperature or high humidity. - Do not allow battery contacts to contact metal. When keeping or carrying the battery,

    be sure not to allow the battery to contact metal.

    WARNING - Recharge the batteries with pipette installed. The pipette can be used even when

    the battery is being recharged. - When recharging is unsuccessful even after charging for the specified time (Five

    hours up to fully recharged), stop recharging a battery. - Use only the supplied with the pipette. Do not use other batteries.

    CAUTION - Do not use a leaking battery. - Because the battery body may become hot when using the pipette continuously for

    a long time, take care not to get burned when handling it. - Should you get battery fluid from a leaking battery in your eye, immediately flush

    with copious amounts of water and seek immediate medical attention. Should the liquid contact the clothes or skin, rinse immediately with copious amounts of water.
